ICARUS - Trade Paperback

R 335,00


Christmas. A time of peace, joy, and love.

But not in the Cape of Storms. On 17 December, a freak flood uncovers the body of Ernst Richter in the dunes near Parklands — the Ernst Richter, notorious Internet entrepreneur, owner of the controversial Ernst Richter, who disappeared so mysteriously a month ago.

Nobody wants the case. Not the SAPS in Table View or Stellenbosch, becuase they know trouble when they see it, thank you very much. Media trouble. Manpower trouble. Cold, unsolvable case trouble. And pressure from the top brass, infighting, departmental politics ...

Even under normal circumstances, Benny Griessel and Vaughn Cupido would have had their work cut out for them. Because at everybody are lying through their teeth. And the list of people who would have loved to strangle Ernst Richter with their bare hands, is growing every day.

But circumstances are not normal: Benny has fallen off the wagon, and Cupido is in love. With one of the major suspects.

And on 24 Decemeber, a young wine farmer starts confessing to an advocate in Cape Town, turning the whole case on its head.

Christmas will never be the same again.
